  • Brita Kiffney

    Inishmore, off Ireland’s west coast, is one of the three Aran Islands, where most natives speak both Gaelic and Irish. In addition to the prevalence of Celtic culture, Inishmore is known for its grey limestone landscape, which ends in a rock wall at the sea’s edge. (Sam Abell/National Geographic Stock)

Giant’s causeway - A magnificent basalt hexagonal rock formation in Ireland.

Sceilig Mhichíl (in Irish meaning Michael’s rock) is a steep rocky island in the Atlantic Ocean about 9 miles (14.5 kilometres) from the coast of Co. Kerry. It is the larger of the two Skellig Islands. After being founded in the 7th century, for 600 years the island was a centre of monastic life for Irish monks. The Gaelic monastery, which is situated almost at the summit of the 230-metre-high rock became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996.
